Flatly false, or maybe just uninformed/misinformed. My dad led his rifle platoon into Rome that June (88th div) and the toughest fighting was still ahead. I'll assume you just accepted someone else's opinion, that you aren't gaslighting the facts to advance your argument, but I am curious...just what IS your argument? Is there some way that letting Russian troops sweep across western Europe would have been good for somebody? If so, who?
